How long have you had your temporary? 10 days? 10 weeks? 10 years? If you've been wearing your temporary crown for 10 days, you should have no problems with the fit of your permanent crown. However, if it's been 10 years, you'll need to start the process over. Temporary crowns are just that, TEMPORARY. They are not meant to protect your tooth for an extended period of time. I would recommend seeing a dentist for a complete evaluation to determine your options at this time. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
